The place is small. We came with a party of 12 and they weren't ready. The managed to give a good service and they did it. Try them next time if you can. Next door is a great coffee shop.

Was given Chips, Salsa and Cilantro Cream. Salsa was under seasoned but the Cilantro was very good. Had Shrimp Tacos and Shrimp Cocktail, Both average at best, Cocktail lacked depth of flavor. Wife had Garlic Shrimp, Shrimp was over cooked producing a chew finish. I had the Fish Au Graten, again average at best. After reading the reviews, I left... More

The food is Excellent. I would say 4 to 5 star. Although some come dressed to the nine's you can come casual. A little pricey, but well worth it.

I understand that the cats are feral but if you have allergies or just don't want a half dozen cats with feet of... More

We have been eating at The Blue Marlin since 2002 or earlier. Their fish tacos (we prefer battered) are delicious. For $3.50 you get two tacos with fried fish, pickled onions, cabbage, pico de gallo, and the best cilantro cream sauce you will ever taste. This combo makes for the best fish taco in town. They also have delicious fish... More

This place is great! Great food, service and price. We will go back. The grilled shrimp was perfectly done. As we ate they brought in two huge bags of fresh oysters. Talk about fresh.
